As celebrities, editors and influencers took to the streets of Italy’s fashion capital, MGInsider and influencer Giulia Valentina was on-hand to take note of the hottest looks from the most stylish at Milan Fashion Week. From pared-back utility to wild animal prints, these are the trends you’re going to be seeing everywhere this season. So move fast and get ahead of the fash pack – these are the looks you need to know now.
Thanks to the likes of Alexander Wang and Victoria Beckham, the sportswear trend sees no signs of slowing down. However, there has been a shift away from the athleisure movement to a more refined, ‘luxe’ look. Pair puffer jackets with leggings and likewise choose retro tracksuits with a tapered leg to keep your silhouette streamlined – this isn’t what you’d wear to go to the gym in. Details are key to turning up your style game a notch; from colour-blocking to bold logos, bumbags and chunky trainers.
The animal print trend shows no signs of slowing down for SS19. From spots to snake prints, bolder is better, so whether your clash your prints or opt for statement colour palettes, the key is to trust your (animal) instincts. From the classic leopard print shirt to the snake trouser, take a cue from the street style set and re-work your tailoring with this statement trend. Choose tactile fabrics and different scales of prints for added style points.
A must-try trend for the season, neons set the streets alight at Milan Fashion Week. For a subtle take on the trend, take a cue from Balenciaga and Sportmax and give neutrals a jolt of electricty with a burst of acid green or fluoro pink. Take the look to the next level by embracing colour-blocking in primary shades with suiting and separates; think pillarbox red paired with fuschia pink or deep purples with emerald green, in an array of rich textures from leather to satin.
If you like your fashion with a side of function, then the utility trend has you covered. Lightweight technical fabrics in oversized cuts create fluid silhouettes perfect for spring, elevated with draping and gathered ruffles for a touch of femininity. Easy to dress up or down, the shirt dress and trench coat are key to the trend and the epitome of laid-back luxe; look to finishes such as oversized pockets and zip detailing for a sporty touch.
